    Yes I appreciate bad weather is not BA s fault but looking at the guide I do not feel they made suitable effort to provide a replacement crew which was meant to land at FLL from Orlando at 8pm to enable us to fly out that evening. Indeed updated we were able to obtain suggested we were still due to take off at 2am. It was staffing that was the issue for the very long delay not the weather or plane.

    Be that as it may, BA will almost certainly deny your claim so you will need to take legal action to get a result. I doubt Bott & Co would take the case.

    The only hope you have imo would be to prove that BA did not take 'all reasonable measures' to shorten or mitigate the delay.

    This is easier to prove at a home base or even a busy base like JFK where more resources are available to the airline. It would be an up hill battle, but if you feel strongly it may be worth a go.

    I'd put your chances at about 30%.

    Blue Air
    4 px delayed 7 hours liverpool Alicante due 1600 euros compensation. However, Blue Air do not seem to have a UK presence, and I believe they are doing it on purpose. How do you go about suing them, and can it be done. I have spoken to oe online solicitor who explicitly states on their site they do not pursue Balkan Airlines. I called and they confirmed they do not go after Blue Air claims.


    Has anyone been successful with a Blue Air claim, if so how to do it?


    Many thanks

    It's a tough one. I understand that they do have an office in Germany, so you could use ESCP (Euro small claims court in UK)

    Dr Watson's most excellent notes in the Ryanair thread are a good start.

    Can I check the reasons for flight delay
    Can anyone tell me where I can find the reason for a delayed flight in 2014. The company (British Airways) tell me that I cannot claim as it was delayed because of adverse weather conditions, which prevented the aircraft operating as scheduled.

    However, I thought the flight was cancelled because of technical problems with the aircraft. How can I check this?

    You can't really but if you take legal action, the airline will be forced to provide details of the delay. You can also try looking up your flight on Bott&Co or EUClaim's flight checkers.
